Taylor Swift continued her crusade to make all her favorite people hang out with each other when she introduced Law and Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay to her beloved cat Olivia Benson — who happens to be named after Hargitay’s Law and Order: SVU character.

Hargitay made a return appearance to Swift’s 1989 tour on Saturday night in Philadelphia, and backstage Swift introduced the SVU actress to her cat namesake. “This is Olivia Benson meeting Olivia Benson, and things are going well so far,” Swift says in the video.

This may have been the first time the Bensons have met in person, but Hargitay has been a longtime fan of Swift’s cat. In September, she posted a picture of herself wearing an Olivia Benson cat collar.

 

Now, we just need Ellen Pompeo to hang out with Swift’s other cat, who’s named after Pompeo’s Grey’s Anatomy character Meredith Grey.
